Some news on gtranslator

9:20 pm Uncategorized


I think there was quite some time since my last post about gtranslator. After some months without touching anything on gtranslator I decided to come back to it and fix several critical bugs and I think that right now is in quite a good state. We still have to seal the API and fix here and there but now I think it is usable and quite useful for gnome translators.

About the latest news:

  • As you can see we have a new logo!! I think it is really good and I’d like to thanks Ulisse Perusin.
  • Removed the subversion plugin as it is quite useless right now. (Hope we will have a git plugin soon)
  • I refactored all the api using gtr instead of gtranslator. (Quite a pain task)
  • No more weird crashes with the header.
  • Now we use libunique so we use a single instance (I’d like to thanks to the libunique devs for their great work)
  • And quite a lot of bugfixes.

So if you are a translator please test this program and let us know what you think about it, how you would improve it and file bugs!!

    AFAIK there is already an executable for it, have a look in the gtranslator page, I think it is posted there the link.

    My killer features what I would like to have in Gtranslator is spell check and support to translation memory (I forgot how was that standard called).

    That is already supported. :)

    Nice! I’ll keep filling bugs ;)

    However I’d like to know whether you thought about a feature for deleting entries from the translation DB.

    Thanks Nacho.
